Where to begin,
how to ever express all the feelings-
I look out the window and see
life going on as usual-
don’t they know the sadness that
abounds in this tiny hospital room.
A lifetime of feelings
that need to be expressed
in such a short time
minutes, maybe an hour.
To somehow give him
all the love he needed, deserved-
and to try somehow, some way to convey why.
To hope he knows, to hope he understands
I love him.
